Together for Scrapbooking Global blog hop

Hello and Welcome to a marvellous Scrapbooking blog hop!!  

This Facebook group shares so much brilliant inspiration and creativity and I love seeing what everyone comes up with each month!!  

This time the theme is Together which is a perfect title for almost every scrapbook page I create!!  

Delys was the creative genius guiding us with our topic this time.  

My page was inspired by the wonderful work of  the amazing Tatiana Creative who created a similar page in her showcase of the gorgeous Sand & Sea suite from our new Mini Catalogue which starts on 5th January 2021. 

The background of my page features the gorgeous Sand & Sea designer paper.  The bottom 'sandy piece' was ripped into 2 and layered over the top of each other to create extra dimension.  

The shells are all from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set and fussy cut, then sponged on the edges.

The greeting at the base of the photo comes from the same stamp set, and I've also used a few stickers from the Seaside Shells sticker sheets as well as some Opal Rounds.  

The title of my page is 'we're all in this together' and it comes from a Sale-a-bration stamp set called Heal your Heart,  I think it works just perfectly for our family photo on the beach.  

Up next on our hop this time is the amazing Cynthia McQueen.  Make sure you keep hopping around everybody to see lots of really wonderful projects to inspire you!!  

Here's the list of everybody in the hop in case you get lost on the way!!

Amazing Scrapping

Hello and Welcome to My Amazing Scrapbook page!!  I've showcased a new stamp set that is coming in our new Mini Catalogue starting on 5th January 2021.  It's called You are Amazing (which is why my page is amazing!!lol) and has a coordinating kit.  My cardstock page base is Terracotta Tile and I think it works well with the black glittered organdy ribbon and the white elements.  

I've used a few stamps from this set along with some Shimmery Embossing Paste combined with the dotty stencil from the Basic Pattern Decorative masks. 

The little die cuts scattered around the page are also a new product from our Mini Catalogue - make sure you keep an eye out for them - Dandy Laser Cut paper.

Embossing Inspiration CASEING the CATTY #298

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and challenge CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our fabulous Stampin' Up! catalogues (Catty).

This week, we are CASEING a project featuring an embossing folder from our Mini Catalogue.

August - December 2020 Mini Catalogue  page 35 all images © Stampin' Up! ®

I've been inspired by the gorgeous card on page 35 featuring Peaceful Nativity (which is actually on SPECIAL for $28!!)  and the Evergreen Forest embossing folder which is carrying over after this Mini Catalogue finishes.  I'm so glad to be able to finally CASE this card!!  I've loved it ever since I first opened this Mini catalogue!!

I've created an easel card and used Feels like Frost paper embossed with the Evergreen Forest Folder, and also used Snowflake Splendour paper with the Evergreen Folder.  

The greeting comes from my favourite Christmas stamp set for this year - Wrapped in Christmas.  I've used Gold Foil for the star above this stable cut using the Nativity Dies.  

My card layout is quite similar to the original - I've just added the extra layer for the stable roof around the main image using the coordinating Nativity dies  (also on special for just $34.30).

Inside the card, I've used another of the lovely stamps from Peaceful Nativity.  

Up next this week is the gorgeous Michelle and her beautiful dragonfly card - swoon.  Make sure you keep hopping all the way around the hop to get lots of inspiration so you can join in the challenge with us on our Facebook challenge page here.

Puppy Christmas

Hello and Welcome to a fun card with a difference!! 
I've had the thrill of creating a puppy Christmas card for a customer and just love the final result!!  

I've used the gorgeous Playful Pets designer paper and fussy cut out all the dogs, and combined these with the very Christmassy images from Joyful Holly which was fussy cut for a swag along the top of my z fold card.   (This stamp set is actually discounted by 10% right now while stocks last!!) 

The inside of the card features the newspaper images from the Wonder of the Season paper which is 50% off!!  
The cute little Santa hats come from the Little Treats bundle - also on sale before it's no longer available after the 4th January!!

My card is a z fold and it's slightly larger than the usual size.  My card stock is the full length of an A4 sheet scored at 7.5cm and 15cm on the long side and it is 14cm wide.
